Tenant asked to vacate rented flat for not staying there PTI | 06:07 PM,Jul 13,2011 New Delhi, Jul 13 (PTI) A tenant has been asked by a Delhi court to vacate his rented premises on the ground that he had not been residing there for over two years."The appeal is accepted and the eviction order on the ground of not residing is passed," District Judge-cum- Additional Sessions Judge O P Gupta said allowing the appeal of Safdarjung resident Gurdip Singh, challenging Additional Rent Controller's February 2011 order dismissing his plea for evicting his tenant from his flat in Rajouri Garden.Singh had sought the eviction of his tenant Gurbaksh Singh from his Rajouri Garden flat on the ground that he had neither been residing in nor maintaining it for long.Gurdip, in his appeal, told the court that his brother had let out the property to Gurbaksh in 1976 at Rs 250 per month excluding water and electricity charges, for residential purpose.Gurdip had also pointed out to the court following an another court's order to Gurbaksh to demolish an unauthorised construction in his rented flat, the tenant had locked it up and had begun staying elsewhere.The court noted that the Delhi Jal Board water connection to the rented flat was disconnected in December 2008 due to non-payment of dues and that he had last paid electricity bill six to seven years ago and did not know as to how much amount of electricity was due."In the instant case the non consumption is for a much longer period. There is no electricity and water supply in the suit premises. A person cannot be believed to live without electricity and water," the court held while directing Gurbaksh to vacate the premises.
